Mumbai, Feb 28 (IANS) Kylie Minogue is ready to rock for Anthony D'Souza's "Blue". But her song is not ready! At least not as ready the director wants it to be.

Explains D'Souza, "Though the lyrics have been readied, and Abbas Tyrewala has done a wonderful job, there's something missing. I want that one hook or catchline that would give that song an extra global push appeal to go with Bollywood-goes-international image represented by Kylie Minogue in 'Blue'."

D'Souza doesn't know what that phrase would be. But he's sure Abbas will deliver before the song starts shooting in the next couple of days.

"I want something like Gulzar Saab's 'Chaiyya chaiyya' or 'Jai ho'. Abbas is a brilliant writer. I know he can do it."

When contacted, Abbas Tyrewala is surprised to hear about D'Souza's dissatisfaction with the song. "I don't write lyrics any more for outside assignments. But when it comes to Rahman I can't stop myself. I thought the song is done and ready to be shot. It wasn't easy writing two sets of lyrics reflecting two languages, cultures, thoughts and ways of life. And then the male and female portions of the song were recorded separately in Mumbai. So, I wrote extra lyrics because we didn't know what shape the composition will finally take when the two voices are brought together."

About the catchphrase that Anthony D'Souza is looking for, Abbas said: "If any changes are required, I'm not aware of them."
